I'm trying to figure out why when I swap my BT router with a USG my speed gets considerably downgraded.
I've BT 900, and when I do the speed test with the BT router it points out 900+ mbps, if I swap it with the USG and try to run the speed test it barely gets to 150mbps...
I guess it's some configuration that I've wrong, but to be honest, I haven't changed much of the defaults, I'm sure the threat detection is off too.
Any help/suggestion to fix the problem would be welcome!
It was supposed to be GB according to the product spec on amazon: Ubiquiti Networks Unifi Security Gateway Router 🤔
You need to check your config and disable basically anything that can affect performance: IDS / DPI / Smart Queues / etc...
With all that disabled you should be able to get 800+ Mbps. Then you can maybe enable DPI as see what happens (as in theory you can get away with DPI enabled, but ymmv)
If that doesn't fix it, check you cables (from ONT to USG, from USG to your switch, etc)
In a nutshell, the USG is an old device, so performance is not the best, but you should be able to get 800+ Mbps disabling some stuff (which, tbh, you don't really need in a home setup)
